Just Flight is pleased to announce the release of the first volume of its highly anticipated VFR Real Scenery series for Flight Simulator X

VFR stands for 'Visual Flight Rules' - this is the way that pilots navigate when they aren't using complex instruments - they look at a map and then pinpoint landmarks on the ground to work out their position. Doing this in a flight simulator requires scenery that's exactly the same as the real landscape. VFR Real Scenery is an amazing piece of software that provides just that - fly over England and Wales in Flight Simulator X and sample the view you'd get from a real aircraft. You can see the real countryside from the air and pinpoint every key landmark. They're all featured - streets, buildings, rivers, lakes, reservoirs and all at extremely high resolution and detail!

VOLUME 1 - South East England

Covers all of Greater London, Kent, East Sussex, Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and parts of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Surrey and West Sussex.

Principal towns featured include: Canterbury, Folkestone, Dover, Brighton, Dorking, London, Basildon, Colchester, Ipswich, Norwich, Cambridge, Peterborough, Bedford, Luton and Watford

VFR Real Scenery uses the very latest 25cm digital aerial images from GeoPerspectives displayed at 1m per pixel resolution in FSX.

Includes 9.6m mesh terrain data which hugely improves the default relief.

Individually edited night textures make flying after dark a real eye-opener!

Water features are rendered with Flight Simulator X water effects - you can land a seaplane in VFR Real Scenery.

Airport runways are correctly aligned between FSX and VFR Real Scenery - there are no ghosts in VFR Real Scenery!

Just Flight's operations director, Dermot Stapleton, commented on the imminent release: "We're extremely proud of this software. It's taken a while to get it from basic aerial photographic data to a user-friendly flight simulation scenery product, but we think the results have been well worth the wait. We could have left out the night lighting, water effects, coastlines or runway correction, but our aim has always been to give our customers something that is as good as we can make it. The other volumes in the series are scheduled for release over the next couple of months and they'll all feature the same high level of attention to detail."
